Arunachal Pradesh is undoubtedly among those Northeastern states whose vast valleys, hill stations, snow-capped mountains and lush greenery call out to all travel enthusiasts. The place has a few spots that are popular among adventure travellers such as Tawang and Ziro Valley. And if you’re someone who’s been looking to explore the less-travelled parts of the state, the centre has approved two new tourist circuits in Arunachal Pradesh for you to travel to.
Arunachal Pradesh to get two new tourist circuits
Immensely grateful to GoI for creating new tourist circuits in Tirap & Longding dists. Till date these 2 districts were kept out of bounds for tourists on pretext of insurgency. But soon after recent assurance by HM Amit Shah this notice came. After all Modi hain to mumkin hain. pic.twitter.com/WrxlVUxEL5

The two circuits which travellers will soon be able to explore, are Dibrugarh – Deomali – Hukanjuri – Khonsa in the Tirap district, and Dibrugarh – Kanubari – Longding in the Longding district, stated officials, according to Arunachal24. Quoting a circular from the Union Home Ministry, the media house said, “The proposal of Arunachal Pradesh government relating to opening of new tourist routes has been examined by the central government. It has, accordingly, been decided with the approval of the competent authority in the Ministry of Home Affairs to open the two new tourist routes in Arunachal Pradesh for tourism purpose.”
These two tourist circuits will not only help boost travel in Arunachal Pradesh, but will also help thousands to explore the stunning sights the place has to offer. Moreover, tourists will get to experience the culture, food, festivals and a lot more of the state like never before, which will not only help local craftsmen and artisans but will help highlight the state’s culturally rich heritage as well.
